This article presents the initial stages of research at the University of Ulster into a mobile intelligent multimedia presentation system called TeleMorph. TeleMorph aims to dynamically generate multimedia presentations using output modalities that are determined by the bandwidth available on a mobile device’s wireless connection. To demonstrate the effectiveness of this research, TeleTuras, a tourist information guide for the city of Derry, will implement the solution provided by TeleMorph, thus demonstrating its effectiveness. This article does not focus on the multimodal content composition but rather concentrates on the motivation for and issues surrounding such intelligent tourist systems.
